Envisioning Future Urban Resilience to Climate Change in Central Maryland

The Baltimore region, in the Chesapeake coastal plain of Northeast United States, co-created positive future visions to build resilience to coastal and urban flooding, extreme heat, and co-occurring hazards.

The Urban Resilience to Extremes Sustainability Research Network (UREx SRN) co-developed six scenarios representing alternative futures for Baltimore and Central Maryland towards a more just, equitable, and resilient region in the face of climate extremes in 2080. Bringing together policy-makers, civil society, and academics, stakeholders identified overarching goals, strategies, and mechanisms to achieve the participants’ visions. Synthetic outputs included detailed social-ecological-technological pathways, future land use modeling, renderings, narratives, and qualitative resilience assessment.
